7.5 gallon nano tank lights

Just wondering what would be a good light for a 121212 cube with medium light plants

Azoo Flexi mini but it's just on and off.
Another option would be a 12" ecoxotic E-series which is programable.

Stingray by Finnex. You might need to raise it a bit more than it goes with the clip.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

I have a 11.8" cube by aquatop and use a simple though not very stylish 6500k 13 watt cfl bulb in clamp reflector lamp hung on a chain about 3-5" above the tank. Got all the tiems from home depot for about $15 (bulbs came in a 4 pack). I have medium light plants like small swords (aflame, parvifloris, hati red, vesuvius) and floating water sprite.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

Are you using CO2?

If so, you could use the Finnex Planted+ Cliplight. That's what I'm using for the same size tank.
